Data Management

Over the next few years, data management activities will focus on the development of a modern Safe Drinking Water Information System (SDWIS). ASDWA continues to work with our partners at EPA, with the support of state representatives, on various committees and focus groups that to manage the development of SDWIS and govern drinking water data management into the future.

Registration is open for the ASDWA/EPA 2020 Data Management Users Conference scheduled for September 14 & 15 with SDWIS State and CMDP training on September 16 and 23.

The Safe Drinking Water Information System (SDWIS)

Staying in the loop on SDWIS – with all of the various distribution lists and moving parts, it can be challenging to know how best to stay in the loop with what’s happening with SDWIS. ASDWA is currently working with EPA on ways to centralize all SDWIS communications to reduce confusion, but for now, here are some options to get you started:

  • Email Distribution Lists – a good first step would be to contact ASDWA and EPA to ask to be added to their email distribution lists. These are separate lists, each maintained by their respective organization.
  • ASDWA’s Update – ASDWA’s electronic newsletter covering all of the major happenings in drinking water from all ASDWA news feeds. This is a great option to track SDWIS updates on a weekly or daily basis, without cluttering up your inbox with more notifications. Follow the instructions at https://www.asdwa.org/subscriptions/ to learn more about adding SDWIS to your ASDWA Update.

Looking for more information on SDWIS? ASDWA maintains a SDWIS User Community with helpful information about both the Legacy system and information related to modernization efforts. Users have access to SDWIS Legacy software and documentation, and quick links to EPA resources [SharePoint and Zendesk]. Submit a Login Request Form to obtain credentials. Please note, ASDWA credentials will not work to access EPA-owned resources, like SharePoint or Zendesk.

If you have questions or need help determining the best option to meet your needs, feel free to contact Anthony of ASDWA.
